      What is an item or tool you thought you absolutely must have but once you got you didnt like it or just never used it.

        My is funnel trays to use with embossing powder/glitter, I brought several different sizes and thought I’d use them all the time. But I soon realised they are a complete pain to clean, there is always glitter stuck in the bottom. So now they live in the bottom of a draw somewhere and I gone back to using pieces of paper to catch my embossing powder.

          haha! I have one of those trays that I occasionally use. You’re right-paper is easier.

            For me, an old purchase, over 8 years ago? The Xyron Page Runner, it had cartridges and would print right on your page.

                It’s an amazing eyelet setter. It’s metal and heavy. I don’t even ember the name. Oh and the bind it all. I suck at mini albums, so why did I buy the bind it all?

                  I so hear you about the tray. I have one and I do use it occasionally but yeah, a piece of scrap paper is so much easier.

                  I guess my thing is the tiny craft iron. It’s too small for smoothing out large surfaces and it has no actual heat settings. I use an old iron that no longer works for steam (like I ever use that shiny new one I bought to replace it, right?).

                  A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.

                    I’ve never thought to use and iron on my layouts. Knowing me I’d probably just burnt them. If I have a warped layout I just blue tack it onto cardboard long enough to take the picture.

                      Ditto! I have one of those trays. It is in a box somewhere. I have a little Cricut. I have used it once or twice. I always use my Big Shot. I have a Cinch. It makes albums. I have never used it. It is in a closet. I would be afraid to use an iron. I just live with the warping.

                          Mine would be my cricut, it just sits there and I never use it!

                            I haven’t bought anything lately that I regret buying. But, I do have somethings that I rarely use- Cameo, a lot of my dies, and a lot of mists. I was just thinking that I should go through my mists and purge some. I have about 50 Lindys mists and I can’t remember the last time I used one!

                                I have a Fiskars circle cutter that I hated the first time I used it and haven’t used it since! Wow, I think it must be like 16 years old?!!!
